A personal anecdote on this thread:

Last week, I thought I was an "Aquarius." This was not based on any hard
evidence, or even on 'lab' results. The only reason I ever accepted the
label "Aquarius" was because that's what someone born in the U.S. told me.

Several days ago, I went on a first date with a classical musician from
Japan. When she asked what day was my birthday, I told her. She then said
that I am an "Aries." She explained that this was a good sign, because she
was "Aries" too. So now I am an "Aries." Who am I to say that one strain of
astrology is superior to any other?

I think Richard might follow this reasoning...
